Luke 2:4-7, And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
If there were anyone who was certain that they were doing God’s will, it should have been Mary. She was literally carrying the will of God in her womb and could feel it move. Yet when it came time to birth…there was no room…
There is a reality of God’s will in the womb of every one of us. Something that God has spoken and Holy Spirit has hovered over until it was conceived in us and the days will inevitably be “accomplished” when it should be delivered.
What then, when there is seemingly no room for it?
Or perhaps I should say, “What now?” because the truth of the matter is, that’s the juncture I’ve come to.
The birthing will not wait for me.
The contractions are setting in and the beautiful gift that God has given me this year, is the knowing.
For He that is mighty has done to me great things; and Holy is His name.
If God will bring forth His only Son, into a place where there was no room, no acceptance…for all of mankind…
He will do the same again for me, to accomplish His will.
His plans will be fulfilled, His Word carried out.
It’s time to take up the unapparent…unbecoming…uncommon… and birth.
Mary wasn’t looking for that place, was she?
She was carrying the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords in her very womb. Surely God would put her in the Hilton, with room service, right? Breakfast in bed, a robe and slippers and a chocolate on her pillow…
Those were just things.
Mary wasn’t looking for the place.
She wasn’t looking for the amenities of life.
She was looking for Him.
Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all of these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33
I’m looking for Him.
